Re: D80 Feel: Questions

At first, I preferred the D50. Then got used to the D70s, which is bigger and has a larger thumb rest against the CF card door. Also has softer rubber molding at that junction. The D80 feels a bit uncomfortable at the thumb rest because of the edge of the plastic body molding between the thumb rest and the SD card door. More soft rubber molding would help. Anyway, you will really need to decide for yourself. I cannot tell you if it will be comfortable for you. I'd call it a compromise that could be a bit better in the comfort department. Personally, I can get used to it, but of the three models I've discussed, it is the least comfortable. Here are what other forums are saying:
